I remember trying to set one up before and one of the issues I had was trying to limit the number of inbound connections.

edit: by connections, I am referring to the number of peers connected at one time

monerod currently can only be set to limit outgoing connections with the parameter --out-peers where the default is 8.

So if you setup your node to be reachable for the public, you can't limit incoming connections. However, you could use a firewall like iptables to limit incoming connections on your public port.
